Seahawks safety Jamal Adams‘ season is over.

Adams suffered a torn labrum and other shoulder damage on Sunday and will have season-ending surgery, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

It’s the same shoulder Adams injured last season and had offseason labrum surgery to repair. The Seahawks expect Adams to make a full recovery for the 2022 season, but it’s obviously a significant concern when a player suffers the same serious injury two years in a row.

It’s also a major concern for the Seahawks that they’re continuing not to get the kind of return on their investment that they were expecting when they traded two first-round draft picks for Adams. Although he has shown flashes of playmaking ability at times, he hasn’t been the kind of player the Seahawks expected him to be even when healthy.

Adams signed a four-year, $70 million contract with the Seahawks this year. His cap hit in 2022 will be $9.1 million.

  1. Yea, those were draft picks well spent. Tear it down and rebuild starting with your 2nd round pick this year as the 1st was part of the trade to the Jets.

  2. Can’t say I’m surprised. I don’t watch Seahawks games often just by product of proximity, but every time I do, this guy goes for highlight reel hits by attempting to detonate people up with his shoulder every single time, regardless of whether or not the play calls for a hit like that. If that’s what you want out of your player and that’s what your player wants, more power to you, but then you gotta pay for it on the back end with stuff like this.

  3. Those high priced prime free agent athletes? The top of the hill is followed by a quick ride to the downhill slope of mediocrity. The only thing that remains is the price tag.

  4. Chasing players and giving up numerous 1st round picks seldom works. See the Rams, Seahawks and Bears to name just a few for the disappointing results.

  5. Hate to be the one to say it but Seattle’s defense looked better after he went down last week.

    They are also missing a 3rd round pick this coming draft.

  7. The trade and subsequent contract for Adams isn’t bad, on its face. The man is an elite talent and fits into the Seahawks’ defensive scheme. That said; this second injury on that same shoulder is very troublesome. Hopefully he can return in fit form next season.

  8. Right again. I was mocked for my analysis on Adams. I had it all the way. Of course, it wasn’t hard to see. He is dumb and can’t move laterally. Horrible combo.

    Do not listen to the media when it comes to NY teams and players. And; when the media mocks BB, know that they are very wrong.

    Yep.

  9. Tough to give up two firsts (is this guy Ronnie Lott or Ed Reed?) and $17.5 mil per and then he’s hurt. Type of moves that cripple franchises.

  10. The test results came back and his designated position of “safety” has been proven False…. If he come back he’ll be the size of a DE.

  11. The new treand, if your supposed to be the big star and your on a sinking ship, you get an injury that takes you out the game so it cant be used against you in your next contract discussion.
    Another fake prima donna whose star faded a while ago me thinks

    A torn labrum is no joke. He’s got another tough period of rehab ahead of him.

    Ya and if they were playoff bound or super bowl bound it would be a bruised shoulder, back in a week or so. We neber know the full extent of an injury report.

    ==========

    He may have fit in the Chancellor role in the LOB. I think that is what Carroll had in mind. Only to find out, Adams didn’t have anywhere near Chancellors cover skills.

    Think about this;

    Roy Williams is one of the poorer cover safeties most of us have seen. One of the guys that seems to come up when discussing Adams.

    Williams – 17 ints his first 5 seasons.. high at that point, 5 (twice)

    Adams – 4 (FOUR!) career high of two this season

    Not only did they whiff on the trade, they doubled down and paid him huge $$.

    This is right up there with the Haynesworth signing, or drafting Tony Mandarich, sandwiched between 4 HOFrs.

  14. Do not listen to the media when it comes to NY teams and players. And; when the media mocks BB, know that they are very wrong.

    Yep.
    ==========

    Nope.

    This is about all Pete Carroll, and an enormous personnel gaffe.

    Nobody in Seattle cares what the media says, least of all NY media, a million miles away. And Belichick has no business being mentioned here at all.

  15. It is looking more and more that Mrs Allen will pull the plug on the Carroll regime and keep Wilson. The only question is does she keep Schneider since Pete has had the final say on all personal (and everything else) and is the one who wanted the very bad trade and stuck in a bad contract for Adams. If Schneider stays and Holmgren continues as an advisor look for Pederson to be the next coach.

  16. Giving up those two first for a middle of the pack safety looks like a major blunder. He wasn’t that good on the Jets.

    Thanks for that insight, George. Sadly, Adams wasn’t a free agent — he was traded to Seattle by the jets. But poor Tampa Bay is definitely going to regret that TB12 deal any year now!

  18. 😂 😂 😂!!!! That trade continues to look better and better by the week. The Hawks needing to rebuild are going to BADLY miss that top 10 first round pick next spring. They traded several high draft picks for an under performing safety and then paid that under performing safety over 17+M PER YEAR and he’s not even the best safety in his division, far from it. I’d take both Budda Baker n Jalen Thompson over 2020-2021 Adams who hasn’t been good the last two years and is injury prone. AZ has arguably the best safety duo in the NFL and all they invested was a very early 2nd and a supplemental 5th for Jalen Thompson who had a late 2nd early 3rd round grade in the 19 draft had he not of lost his last year of eligibility which cost him millions but benefited Arizona. Jalen Thompson has developed into a Pro Bowl caliber FS having a Pro Bowl caliber season.

    Adams hasn’t been elite in years and hasn’t been elite since he arrived in SEA. Far from it. The only thing elite about him is his game day checks, other than that he’s been average to below average at actually playing safety. Ertz absolutely abused him a few weeks ago. Adams has gotten paid and hasn’t lived up to the billing, esp considering the Jets will have a top 10 pick that Adams cost SEA which SEA badly needs. They traded multiple picks for that dude when they could of kept the picks and drafted some younger with far less mileage who going to be even better. Giving up what SEA did for Adams has turned out to be a MAJOR mistake esp considering they’re in rebuilding mode without the premium capital it takes to actually ya know…. Rebuild.

  20. If the Seahawks didn’t give Adams a thorough physical before he signed the new contract in August, then they should have at least put language in that contract that helps them get out from underneath this deal. He’s got “Bosworth shoulders.”

  21. One of the worst decisions recently was trading for and then signing this guy to a massive contract. He grades out I’m the bottom 1/3 of the league for safetys. The most hilarious thing is this guy didn’t get one sack. He fleeced Seattle.

  22. Sad Seahawks fans said “we’d blow the picks anyways. Yeah, that’s why you trade multiples 1’s for a friggin’ one dimensional safety.

  23. I remember him recruiting Le’veon Bell to the Jets then demanding a trade shortly after…I’ll just leave it at that.

  24. For the life of me, I still can’t figure out why Carroll, one of the ultimate DB gurus, didn’t draft Budda Baker, who was right in his own backyard.

  25. I would drop Pete and I doubt Wilson’s thumb is “fine. The cell phone challenge flag play was Pete’s last stand.
